Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce has announced the finalists for the third annual Greater Lincolnshire’s Construction & Property Awards 2019; Delta-Simons are thrilled to be up for Adviser of the Year.
With the event taking place on Tuesday 5th February 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Lincoln, the Client Adviser of the Year award recognises Lincolnshire-based companies which gives support, advice and professional services within the construction industry and has achieved significant growth and impact over the last year. The applicants must also have been involved in key developments in the Greater Lincolnshire area.
Our entry featured some interesting projects for clients such as Stirlin Developments and Jackson & Jackson Developments.
The Parklands – Delta-Simons delivered a number of services to this project for our award-winning client Jackson & Jackson Developments/Jackson Living. Planning and design requirements included arboricultural surveys, Great Crested Newt surveys and translocations to a newly constructed pond feature, bat surveys and appropriate exclusion licenses and ground investigations including infiltration testing. Being an environmentally sensitive development under local scrutiny, it was important to demonstrate that the client could enhance the ecological and environmental credentials of the site through the works that we completed.
Leafbridge – Delta-Simons played a significant role for our client, Stirlin Developments, in bringing this commercial site forward from being a landfilled, former brownfield site, through outline planning for a major light industrial and office park. Works includeed extensive contaminated land site investigation works, lizard survey, translocation works, and bat transect surveys. The ground conditions and site setting were always challenging with a 4 – 5-year period of time to see the project come to fruition and start on-site (read case study).
Cornhill Development – Delta-Simons undertook geotechnical and contaminated land investigations on this award-winning regeneration project for the Lincolnshire Co-Op via Banks Long and Co. Access was tricky within the listed building for investigations and through our close relationship with the city council and through our reputation of solid project work, we were able to negotiate a phased approach to the works to satisfy both customer and planning.
Paul Bennett, Unit Director for the Midlands regions, says "We are incredibly proud to be named as finalists for the Advisor of the Year award, and to have the opportunity to work on these great client projects around Lincolnshire".
